Please join Sebastian Royo, Director of Madrid Campus in a luncheon discussion about Globalization. Globalization generates complexities and new demands which have an impact on higher education systems.

For educators the key challenge is how to manage differences and to take into account multiple perspectives. At the same time, the global economy demands an international workforce and growth will be found in overseas markets. Hence, educational systems have to prepare students for a new environment that demands adaptability and flexibility. Furthermore, globalization has an impact on curriculae because many of the main challenges facing individuals and countries are global and citizenship in a democratic society requires global knowledge. This presenation will look at the impact of globalization on higher education systems and explore ways in which they will have to adapt to respond to the new environment.
